More than 350 professionals attended the fourth edition of MeetingPack, an international event for the food plastic packaging industry held in Valencia, Spain. The event focused on trends in sustainable barrier packaging. Single use plastics pose a serious threat to the environment and there has been a huge change in consumer attitudes towards single use plastics. European legislation is now in place to reduce the amount of single use plastic across industry sectors. MeetingPack provides an excellent opportunity for companies to showcase these advances to their own industry and to society.
